24 large shrimps, peeled, deveined and tails off
24 whole large basil leaves
24 thinly sliced prosciutto

2 On the stove heat up a grilling plate over high heat.
3 Remove the shrimps from the marinade and reserve the marinade. Wrap the middle of each shrimp first with a leave of basil and then with the prosciutto. Thread 4 shrimps lengthwise on each of 6 metal skewers. (if no metal is on hand, use bamboo skewers that you will have submerged in water for a couple of hours so they will not burn when grilling).
4 Grill the shrimps basting with the marinade for several minutes on each side. Serve immediately.
